Seville sits alongside the River Guadalquivir and is the capital of Andalusia, one of Spain's most popular tourist directions. The city forms the westernmost corner of the country's 'Golden Triangle' with Córdoba and Granada and is home to 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Moving from the old Moorish fort of the Alcázar to the Gothic Roman Cathedral or General Archives documenting the history of Spain's involvement in the Americas, visitors will quickly appreciate Seville as a city infused with a blend of numerous cultural and historical influences. The City is also renowned as being one of the hottest in Europe and in the summer months is best enjoyed in the shade, sampling some of the region's exquisite tapas and sherry. Alternatively it's a couple of hours drive from the coast, allowing for the perfect escape to the beach for the day.
